Farside Named Features

(The following features are not formally included in the present Rükl rectangle, but they are adjacent to it and their centers are less than 10° beyond the mean limb -- so they may be seen here in whole or in part with a favorable libration)

Additional Information

Visibility of the southern part of the farside's Southpole-Aitken Basin

When the libration is favourable for the limb regions near the southpole, something of the farside's Southpole-Aitken Basin could be seen as a system of parallel looking layers between the southern craters. These layers are segments of the southernmost (and earth-faced) part of this giant basin. - DannyCaes Oct 13, 2015
